Good news and a quick craft

Well, I have great news to report! My mother was able to catch a plane to Daytona Beach and is now safely home with my father. It is wonderful that she is healing so quickly after two major problems.
On another note...while she was here I decided to do a craft to keep my hands busy while I was taking care of her. I thought I would share a pic...of my primitive eggs. I gave a set to a dear friend and she adored them. I hope you can get a good look at them...they are made from wool skirts and jackets that I purchased at the Goodwill. They turned out rather cute and are now on my coffee table. I am thinking about adding them to a friends store and see if I could sell a few sets for some extra spending money.
I will update again tomorrow because I have a pic of a wonderful treasure that I picked up yesterday...thanks for sticking with me while I was gone.

Dianntha..they are really cute! I am teaching myself how to make penny rugs and such as well. I also figured that buying wool sweaters at Goodwill and felting them myself would be a great way to save $$$! Especially if you get them on sale when they have the 50% off. Penny rugs can be so expensive..I love them!
Good for you!
